Walgreens 12/28-1/3...

We were out for the weekend, went to a waterpark!!
The Kalahari in Sandusky, OH
They are running specials... $299 for 2 nights and admission to the waterpark (admission alone costs $39+ a person a day!)

We had a beautiful room with fridge, microwave
(so we brought lunch supplies) and a small patio.
It was a long walk to the waterpark, but worth it for the price.

Hubby was talking to another guest and they compared it to Disney World without the 18-20 hour drive. Nice place if you're looking for a vacation!

So... I wasn't able to get Walgreens up in a timely fashion...
so I found a link to one that has it all together for you.

Here is a link to the Thrifty Momma who has done a good job putting together this weeks deals at Walgreens.

Merry Christmas!!!

I hope you all have a 
Wonderful Christmas!!

We haven't got our snow here this year, and doesn't look like it's coming, 
so no dreaming of a white Christmas.

  My little 3 yr old keeps saying it can't be Christmas without snow.  I think he'll change his mind when the gifts start coming... although we've already had one round of Christmas celebration with Hubby's family and he's not calling it Christmas yet, so we'll see.

So, spend time with your family today if you can and enjoy every minute of it! I plan on it... from the food and festivities, to the board games and naps, it's all good!  

If you're unable to spend time with your family I challenge you to do something special for someone today, even someone you don't know.  It will give you a boost for the day, and who knows... the person you bless may need it more than ever!  

We'll talk about deals again soon... promise!  Today is reserved for family, friends, helping others, and celebrating Jesus' Birthday!  Have Fun!

Need a last minute gift??

I don't know about you, but I often think I need just one more thing for someone at the last minute. is a great option for such a thing. You can purchase a restaurant gift certificate and print it out as soon as you've finished your payment for it.

Find out more about at my post here.

Also.. use code: HOLIDAY now through 12/25/08 and get 80% off your purchase!

Ottoman sale at Amazon...

You can choose from microsuede and leather and several colors
retail prices range from $149-$159!

Shipping is free to $3.49 depending on the set you choose.  

Spend $50 or more in the Home & Garden Store and get one of the following magazines free:  Gourmet, Conde Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, Bon Appetit, Domino, or Glamour, or opt to take the refund of $8 instead of the magazine.  Details Here

Here are the ones I found worth noting.

Chicago Cutlery w/ Bonus set & free steaks...

I just bought one of these for myself a few days ago and thought I would pass along the deal, although it's changed in price since I bought it... it's still a good buy.

I got the chance to use them for the first time Saturday and they are great on first impression.

The price fluctuates... you may want to put it in your cart and come back to see if the price drops before you actually purchase it... if you're willing to take the risk.

I bought my set for $59.97 and got free shipping and the bonus Shear and Cheese Knife set as described in the link, as I write it is priced at $99.99 (the same set without the bonuses was on sale for $149 at Kohl's last week!).
It pays at Amazon to keep an eye on the prices and wait for the best deal.

I also qualify for $85 worth of free meat from Omaha Steaks as described here... and the free magazine subscription of which I will choose the $8 refund instead.

Magazine details... Spend $50 or more in our Home & Garden Store and you can get one of the following magazines included with your purchase: Gourmet, Condé Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Domino, or Glamour. All qualifying subscriptions have an $8 value

Hubby loves the cheese knives already! Almost worth the buy to see him so happy cutting the cheese... no pun intended :)

Calphalon Pan w/lid ... Great Buy!

Here's a great buy on a 12 inch Calphalon Pan with lid!

Reg $168, currently $20.52 at Amazon and shipped free if you purchase $25 in qualifying products from Amazon.

Amazon's had some great buys on these recently, but the prices have gone up and down... if you're looking for a good pan, get one before the prices go back up!

purchase $50 in Home and Garden at Amazon and get a free magazine subscription to Gourmet, Condé Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Domino, or Glamour, or choose to send in for an $8 refund instead. See details here

Sunday coupons....

There will likely be no coupons in the Sunday paper tomorrow, Sunday, Dec. 21, 2008.

This is good and bad... no coupons to have to sort through on such a big holiday week, but no new coupons for sales either.
I could use the break myself!

There are none scheduled for the week, but that doesn't mean there won't be any. If you plan on picking some up while you're out tomorrow, be sure to check them first.

Those of us that subscribe are just out of luck since you can't exactly cancel a week... at least not to my knowledge.

Free 8x10 print at Walgreens...

Hurry... this promotion ends today!

Free 8x10 print from Walgreens if you checkout and use code FREEGIFT.
Expires 12/20/08

No other purchase required, and you don't have to pick up the print today... just order it before midnight (of what time zone I don't know).

Great promotion! Don't miss this one. You could even do a collage on your computer and print it as an 8x10 as a gift!

Thanks to CommonSenseWithMoney for posting this one.

Farouk CHI Ceramic Flat Iron Hair Straightener

Anyone who has a teenage girl that wants a hair straightener has probably heard about this...

a Farouk CHI 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Hairstyling Iron

These are typically very expensive straighteners, but are said to be the best of the best.
There are several widths, this one being the one inch which is nice because with some practice you can manage some loose curls with it.

Unfortunately I don't have one of these myself and instead I have a less expensive model you can purchase in the store... not sure of the brand without going to look. It works fine for me, but I've not experienced the CHI either so maybe don't know what I'm missing!

So... if you have someone insisting on a CHI... or maybe you just want to impress them that you even know what they are... check out Amazon for a good buy. This one runs, according to Amazon $190+ and is on sale for $69.99 w/free shipping.

I occasionally hear of people getting these for around $100, but never heard of less.

Back today....

My posts have been few and far between the last few days. Sundays are usually minimal anyway, but Mondays I'm usually on it!

I've been down with the flu bug since Sunday evening but I'm making a comeback today... Lord willing.

Taking the little guy to preschool and for pictures today and will try and post again later today if I can, I have other things to catch up on too.... including lots of Christmas presents that came from Amazon that need wrapped :)

Free Holiday Cards...

VistaPrint USA Inc.

You can get 10 free Holiday cards right now through VistaPrint...

VistaPrint USA Inc.

or get 20 cards for $1.99

These are nice photo cards... click on the links above to take a look.

VistaPrint is a great online resource for various home or business office supplies. I've used them myself for business cards and their service was quick & the product I received met my expectations.

Most of their free products have their logo on the back of them to advertise their site. It is small and not significant, but there. If that doesn't bother you, you can often get products from them for free + shipping costs.

If you want more detailed products, or wish to not have their logo on the products you will pay a little more for the items you purchase, but their prices still seem very inexpensive.

Shop online for Christmas!

It seems I'm always posting online deals these days.
There are so many good finds this time of the year that are hard to pass up!

Amazon is a great place to find Christmas gifts that are greatly discounted and often delivered to your door for free. I find many kids toys, kitchen supplies & other gifts at Amazon.

Some other places to find great buys are Disney, JCPenney's and to name a few.

Always search online for codes
before making a purchase anywhere online...
just type in your search bar the store name followed by the words discount codes and if there are any current ones they should come up in a number of websites that track these.

Amazon has had some great toy deals lately, and paired with other rebates and free gifts, the deals only get better. Here are a few examples of items I've come across that are worth mentioning...

Barbie® & The Diamond Castle Princess Liana Doll
Reg. $29.99, currently priced at $14.99

Barbie® My House
Reg. $39.99, currently priced at $12.99

BARBIE Party Cruise
Reg. $69.99, currently priced at $44.99

Barbie iDesign Ultimate Stylist Cards and CD-ROM
Reg. $32.99, currently $29.99

Barbie Candy Glam Style Station Styling Head
Reg. $49.99, currently priced at $39.99

With the above products you can send in for a $50 Rebate
in the form of a $50 Prepaid Visa gift card
that can be used anywhere that accepts Visa.
You can find the form here.

If you purchase the first 4 items above, your total is $102.96- $50 rebate=$52.96
for $172.+ worth of Barbie toys.

There are several other Barbie products (ten total) that qualify as well...
so take a look at the form to see what works for you.

Another item I've mentioned before on my blog is still on sale....

Techno Source Rubik's Revolution which retails for $19.99 (& I've not seen it for much less in the stores) is on sale for $5.99

There are lots of great buys on toys at Amazon right now... you can find a link to many of them here...December Deals @ Amazon

There are also gift ideas for adults at a great buy...

Global Distinctions Buy-One-Get-One-Free Ottoman Set
Reg. $149.99, now $29.99

Victorinox Swiss Army Huntsman with Free Pouch
Reg. $39.99, now $19.50

Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 12-Inch Everyday Pan with Lid
Reg. $168.00, now $19.99

Most of these deals have free shipping with a $25 order... just make sure you select the right shipping option at checkout.

If you can't tell... I love Amazon shopping! There always seems to be something that is a good buy that gets my attention.

Another note about Amazon... If you find something you're interested in, put it in your cart even if it's not at a price you want. If you make an account with them, you can add items to your cart (and then move them to a save for later option) and watch them to see if the price changes. Anytime you sign in, they will tell you if a price has gone down on anything in your cart or your saved items, great benefit if you're looking for a sale on something special.
